I’m also busy with exams and my master essay (read more about it here; thingmlosf.tumblr.com), and I bought a new computer. More about it later. Just wanted to say hi, post this track and upload a little animation demo.
Today I finished my second exam, and I celebrated with relaxing in the sun. Reading a book, “Sputnik Sweatheart” which I mention yesterday. It’s a really good book. On my way to my reading spot I took some “hipster” shots of the park. Enjoy!
It is a busy exam time. As I’m trying to do everything else i usually do (and more) plus read for the double exam next time, I get less and less sleep. Too bad we are so needy about it. “Anywho”, started the day of with a call from my brother about how I should hook up my new Zune to my TV (which didn’t help, but more about it further down). Then I got up and ate breakfast. Nearly the best meal of the day, it’s hard to beat brinner! But I love me some slice of bread! So after that I went to school, but needed to stop by some shops on the way so ended up using nearly two hours wandering around looking at games. Bought “Mannen som elsket Yngve” and “Xgames Pro Boarder”. Starting to get a little stack of Playstation games now, more than twenty. Better start playing them soon. So finally I ended up on school. Started slowly on my test exam. They are so boring and hard. Why can’t test be more easy! I don’t take this course to learn, I just need the ten points. It wasn’t all boring at school on a Saturday, because after a while I went with a friend of mine to another building to make us some food. And after we where done, she wanted to heat her bun (no pun intended) for ten seconds, but she forgot all about it. So suddenly we heard a ding (as when the micro oven is done), and there where coming smoke out of the oven. The bun had taken fire! So then the fire alarm went of and thing when crazy! People where running around, throwing stuff, breaking windows! Some even started loathing! Nah, just kidding. The alarm did went of, but there where like three others in the building so no biggi. Sadly the firemen had to head out (jerk out didn’t quiet fit here). Since the room was “intoxicated” we switched building again.
Finally I got home, and I was planning to continue with the test exam, but no. Ended up reading the latest “GameReactor” and surfing ebay. There is a lot of awesome things to buy! After I’m done with the bloging I’m going to play some Modern Warfare 2!
So about the Zune HD hook up to my TV. First I thought I needed an usb recharger (which costed around 20$) which I could hook up to the outlet. That didn’t work, so thought maybe I need an adapter, because _maybe_ the ac adapter that was with the docking station had some fancy stuff in it. So used another 18$, and that didn’t work out either. Then I finally did something clever and googled the problem. Found out that I only needed to restart the play when this problem I experienced occurred. Couldn’t someone told me this 38$ ago? Hopefully I learned my lesson.
Oh, btw… I now I’ve mention before that I love following links everywhere to see where it goes, and today I spent at least one hour doing just that going from one Norwegian blog to another. It started out that I tried this Twitter “test”, to find out who was my first follower (@tanketom for the link). Found out that it was @pumbaaa which I new. Then I started wondering who this person was (not the first time), so I started to look at pumbaaa followers. First I ended up here where I learned that “Sprite Lip smacker” tastes and smell like shit. Good to now. Did find out some other interesting things, but can’t find the link so sorry. Take a look at this either, wehearthit.com so ended up at a Hello Kitty store.
My brother linked me about an Island called Hashima. Just makes me wanna go to Japan even more! Some more pictures here.
Tomorrow I’m going to try out Moblin on my little laptop. As it is now not working (kinda, tried Arch Linux…). So it’s going to be good to have it up and running again. Other than that not much is happening. Playing a lot of Modern Warfare 2. It’s really addictive. I’ve also only have two weeks to my next exam, so going to be at school reading the most of the time. So hopefully I will get time to write some blog posts while I have a little break at the reading hall (?).
A lot happened today. First I wake up to find out someone have stolen my new squash shoes. So had to take my old ones to practice today. That sucks! Now I need to spend another 1000NOK on new shoes! Unfair, what have I done to karma to deserve that. Hum…
Luckily it got better at school. I finished my home exam in C, one day ahead. Cheers. Now I don’t need to stay at school all the day tomorrow. So now I can go and have dinner with my dad.
I also got three packages in the mail. Couldn’t guess any of them, and one was even marked with figurines. And I hadn’t bought that! So was tripping up the five floors so I could open them up! One was the third Sigur Rós album I won, second was Sega Superstar Tennis which I won in a competition over at Retro1.no. BroboCop was the competition holder. Thank you! The last one was Record of Lodoss War. A great game for the Dreamcast. A bit rare, so I’m quiet happy with it.
So, been a while since I’ve blogged about my life now. Sometimes I don’t feel like talking about myself, but mostly I don’t have the patience to sit down and start writing. The last weeks have been like that. Not sure why that happens, because there have been several occasions where I could just sit down and start to write. I also know that I don’t have to write very long either. It’s not a test or anything like that, but still I don’t take the time to just relax and write. Lately I’ve been feeling, not stressed, but that I have to do something all the time. Like I have to play some 360 or Gamecube, not because I really want to, but because I’ve bought some new games. Guess the collection and not having enough time and interest to play the “new” games tricks with my head.
Speaking of new games, got Viewtiful Joy 2 and Samurai Jack for Gamecube, that puts my Gamecube game collection up to 34! Still a bit to 50 games, but I like how the stack rise! Wonder how much space it would take if I spread them out on my floor. “Anywho”, I had to try them out a little before I could stack them with the others and leave them there till next time I have time to play some games. Samurai Jack was kinda like the series (which I find rather cool), your powerful, quick (at least when you slow down time) and you fight like an real samurai. Think it can be a fun game, because you will learn new combos as you advance through the levels. Also there are some relics you have to pick up and you will get some kind of an bonus. Don’t know yet, as I’ve only played through first level.
Viewtiful Joy 2 was also a fun game. Not sure if I liked the graphical style on it, but the fighting and powers you have and get trough the games, makes it promising. I think I need to play it a bit more in a near future. One of the best trick, is slowing down time. Then you really kick some enemies ass. I really think more games should have slow-motion in some way! Continue reading Me and You
I’ve been super busy this weekend. Have helped my older brother making his Christmas excam movie. I’ve been the staring character, playing two role. Me and mini me. I’m really looking forward to see the end result. I’ll post an update when he release it for public views.
